    Stats insight into Spurs defending

    The issue with Mason was it wasn't his style nor his role. It was Bentalebs as he is the deeper of the two. Although for me the blame lies with Poch who should be clear in which of the two has the defensive role, as generally neither seemed to fully sit deeper and instead took turns. Imo that's...

    Stats insight into Spurs defending

    Off the top of my head, Southampton away we struggled with long balls and a major issue, along with Vertonghen being generally poor, was that none of the DMs were anywhere near to winning the second ball/closing the space of the following up player in the '2nd phase'. Edit: Effectively what...

    Clasie will do very well in replacing him, may even become better.

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    Has there been any info/itk on what was changed from the original plans? I notice you can no longer find the new stadium page on the website. It is still there but only able to be found via Google. The original design (inside at least) was immense and would be the best stadium in the UK imo.

    Player Watch Player Watch: Eric Dier

    After last night, particularly at the end. Future captain? Has a real Ledley King/John Terry hybrid about him. And to paraphrase his post match interview "you aren't a real centre back until you've broken your nose a couple times" Legend in the making.

    A Positive Danny Rose Post

    Liability option please. Has more drive and determination than Davies but he makes ridiculous challenges for fun. Davies is worse though so make of it what you will. Nothing to see here.

    Player Watch: Nabil Bentaleb

    Best performance we've had from him by far. Man of the match for me.

    Player Watch: Ryan Mason

    Brilliant work rate and commitment and love that he tries to probe. However his passing was awful today (all game not just first 20) And he made some stupid decisions tackling wise early on with his relentless attempts to leave a mark on ozil. He could have easily been sent off for 2 Yellows on...

    Fantastic today. The guy has serious potential. Pace, power and a great leap.

    What do we think of Poch?

    Hahaha, sorry but do you think he'd come out and say "I was told leave or be sacked" Don't be so naive

    What do we think of Poch?

    Absolutely bang on. Poch has done some good thing ( a lot of which making up for his own mistakes early on) but he is still far from being a top manager and nowhere near as special as is being made out. Maybe with time he will improve but as it stands I'm not seeing anything beyond the level...

    What do we think of Poch?

    Youre right with that. However none of it relates to his tactical ability, particularly defensively and attacking width which have so far been poor.

    What do we think of Poch?

    Im sure he was told resign or be sacked. Let's be honest there. Secondly that start was extremely lucky and his luck run out, it was clear as day to some of us for a very long time that avb would crumble in the end. Awful tactics. Couldn't attack or defend. The fact Sherwood com in and did...

    What do we think of Poch?

    It's not an agenda, don't be so paranoid. If you want I will list a few for you. Firstly it's 2 less than Chelsea. Furthermore: 4 less than saints, 3 less than swansea, 2 less than Liverpool, 2 less than west brom, 1 less than villa, 1 less than city, 1 less than utd, the same as Sunderland...

    What do we think of Poch?

    No what I was saying was that results are not indicative of performances as we seen with AVB who was utter abysmal but time after time people paraded on here with nonsense about points tallys and how avb was the best thing since sliced bread yet a year later he was sacked (rightly) for some or...
